Re: New To The Tempo family have some questions
Alright update and new questions about the car. Replaced a wobbly belt tensioner, noticed a bit of oil on the front of the block. Red/orange RTV around the timing chain cover. Are there any common low mileage issues with timing or water pumps on these cars?
Swapped out the speedo cable for a new one. Didn't fix the problem. Speedo still bounces around for no apparent reason. So now, my problem is most likely the cluster right? Otherwise it would have to be whatever it reads off of in the transmission. Is that part replaceable? I'm not too knowledgeable about cable driven speedos. I have only ever dealt with VSS electrical components.
*Also forgot to add, the egr pipe from exhaust to valve - the little vacuum line that runs off that was broken. I went to pull the old vacuum line off the piece and it broke off. So I was forced to pull the pipe and weld the piece back on. I reconnected the vacuum line and now when the car is in neutral or park, the idle surges. Any ideas what that could be?
